Program Description

The Radiation Injury Treatment Network seeks to increase healthcare professionals’ understanding of and preparedness for the tremendous medical, environmental, and psychological consequence of a mass casualty radiological/nuclear incident. The 2019 RITN workshop will highlight recent research and policy developments in resource-constrained environments: (1) optimizing ARS patient initial assessment and triage, (2) ensuring the availability and appropriate use of medical and psycho-social supportive care measures, (3) updates on the latest research in radiation-specific medical countermeasures, (4) application of technology as a force multiplier for care and education, (5) opportunities for enhanced collaboration among burn surgeons and RITN professionals. Additionally, the workshop will include the open sharing of lessons learned from past preparedness efforts.

Educational Objectives:

  • Explain the challenges and new developments concerning patient transport, assessment and triage in the resource constrained environment.
  • Discuss progress in research on radiation-specific countermeasures, individual bio-dosimetry, and supportive care during mass casualty radiation emergencies.
